Pommes Frites serves the best authentic Belgian fries in town. Their fries are freshly cut and fried twice to golden perfection. They come in three cone sizes: regular ($4.50), large ($6.25), and double ($7.75). There are 25 creative dipping sauces to choose from, $1 each or three for $2.50. My favorite are the Wasabi Mayo, Roast Garlic Mayo and War Sauce (frite sauce, peanut satay & raw onions). Ketchup, yellow mustard, Tabasco, malt vinegar, frite (traditional European mayo), and especial (frite, ketchup & raw onions) sauce are always free. In addition to fries in a cone, they also serve poutine, which is layers of fries toped with Canadian cured, cheddar cheese and chicken gravy ($5 for small and $6 for large). They only take cash and lanes get pretty long, but it’s worth the wait.
